Messi was asked about his how he felt about his rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
“It’s normal that Cristiano Ronaldo continues to score, he is a predatory striker,” Messi told the Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.
“Ronaldo loves to score goals, he will score every time he plays. He has many qualities as a striker, he scores at the smallest chance that he has.
“If we played together I think I would pass the ball to him, yes … Real without Ronaldo has lost many goals, but it was obvious it would happened.
“Not only goals, Cristiano also brings many other things. If a team loses a player who scored 50 goals per season, its noticeable.
“Real Madrid has great players, but Cristiano scores 50 goals per season.”
Ronaldo also revealed his relationship with Messi.
“We have shared the stage 15 years. I don’t know if that’s happened before — the same two guys on the same stage all the time,” said Ronaldo.
“Of course, we have a good relationship. We haven’t had dinner together yet, but I hope in the future.
“We had that battle in Spain. I pushed him and he pushed me as well. So it’s good to be part of the history of football.”
